Americans name the ‘most hated’ Hollywood celeb–then she throws trump card on who’s worse

Actress Gwyneth Paltrow seemed a bit surprised by a recent title she was awarded.

The dubious honor of being named “Most Hated Celebrity” by Star magazine was bestowed on the Oscar-winning actress, putting her ahead of other stars like Kristen Stewart (No. 2),  Madonna (No. 7), Justin Bieber (No. 8), Anne Hathaway (No. 9), and Lindsay Lohan (No. 16).

The title confused Paltrow, according to ENews.

“First of all, I was like, ‘I’m the most hated celebrity? More than, like, Chris Brown?'” she said, speaking on BBC News’ Hard Talk. “What did I do?”

Brown came in at number 20 on the magazine’s list of hated celebrities.

“All I can do is be my authentic self, and if you know me, then you know who I am, and that I have fun and eat and am so appreciative for my life,” Paltrow added. “But I think there are things about me that make people draw conclusions.”

Paltrow acknowledged that her upbringing with celebrity parents may have given others the impression that she was a “Hollywood princess.” The daughter of actress Blythe Danner and film producer and director Bruce Paltrow, the 42 year-old was born in Los Angeles and enjoyed a rather privileged childhood, later attending the Spence School, a private girls’ school in New York City.

“That inspires a lot of resentment,” the “Iron Man” actress said, noting her wealthy upbringing.

“My parents did well, and I was able to go to a fantastic school, and we grew up in New York City, but the minute I left my college to try to pursue acting, my father was really supportive. But he said, you know, ‘You are completely on your own.’ So, he never gave me anything. I never had any supplementation, he never helped me with my rent, I never had a trust fund,” Paltrow said. “So the idea that I am spoiled or that I didn’t work for what I have is just not accurate, but I can see how somebody might have that perception.”
